It is undoubtedly true that the Muslims all over the world strive to seek pleasure of Allah (SWT). They offer five times prayers, give alms and keep fasts in the holiest month of Ramadan. In order to earn more rewards millions of god fearing devotees strive to book Ramadan Umrah packages to perform their special spiritual itinerary in this auspicious Islamic month.
However, we must never forget that Islam is much more than mere prayers. It is the religion of whole mankind. In other words, it is not just religion. It is a complete way of life where rule of goodness is encouraged. Allah (SWT) loves his followers endlessly. He (SWT) rewards us on every virtuous deed. Furthermore, the glorious Holy Quran is also evident of infinite love of Allah (SWT) for his righteous followers. In this auspicious Book Allah (SWT) affirms the fruition of goodness in the following words.
Whoever works righteous-whether male or female-while he (or she) is a true believer (Islamic monotheism) verily to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision).. (16:97).
Remember that every virtue has rewards. There are so many good deeds that we can perform to earn pleasure of Allah. Nevertheless, here we have gathered some easiest good deeds that we must incorporate in our lives to make our life and afterlife better.
4 Simplest good deeds with unlimited rewards
Here are some simplest good deeds that everyone can integrate in his life.
Give a Smile
It is the simplest and the most effective weapon in Islam. It is the beautiful Sunnah of Holy Prophet (SAW). He (SAW) always wore a contagious smile on his face. It is the easiest way to get favor of Allah (SWT) and his creation. Smile is another way to bring calmness to the stressed soul. Our holiest Prophet (SAW) declared smile as an act of charity for a Muslim. He (SAW) said “Smiling in your brother’s face is an act of charity” (Al-Tirmidhi).
Say Assalaam o Alaikum (Salam)
It is the minutest good deed for which we don’t need to spend a single penny. Allah SWT has directed us to say Salaam when we meet with our fellows. It is another beautiful sunnah of Holy Prophet (SAW). By saying Assalaam o Alaikum (Salam), we intend peace and security for our fellow. Be mindful that the courteous response of Salam by our fellow has same reward by Allah (SWT). Holy Prophet (SAW) has unraveled the reward of saying salaam in the following words “When two Muslims meet (say salaam), and shake hands, they are forgiven their sins before they part (with each other) (Abu Dawood).
Be habitual of saying Alhamdullilah over everything good or bad. Alhamdulliah means “to show gratitude to Allah (SAW). It is the simplest way to earn infinite rewards of Allah (SAW). It is another way to earn barkah (immense blessings) in this life and afterlife. Saying Alhamdulillah is a prayer (dua) to Allah SWT to make our life easy. Allah SWT truly loves those who are grateful. In Holy Quran Allah SWT has promised to his gratuitous followers in following words “If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favor (Chapter 14, Verse 7).
Don’t waste food
It is another easiest virtuous deed that we must include in our life. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) has directed us not to waste food. He (SAW) taught his companions that if any morsel of food falls, they must pick it up, remove the dirt that has stuck to that morsel and then eat it.
